It's a question of "grade" 

From the little house illustration at right 
find the level at which your floor is to 
be installed. Congoleum-Nairn makes a 
wide variety of floor coverings, in vari- 
ous prices suitable for each location. 
Your Congoleum-Nairn dealer can 
recommend the best Congoleum-Nairn 
floor for you according to your grade 
level. 

The meanings of the "grades" are: 

Below-grade floor -Any floor in contact 



with the ground. Basements are typical 
concrete is usual material in sub-floor. 
On-grade floor -A concrete slab at 
ground level with a drainage pad of 
cinders, gravel or crushed stone. (See 
specifications for radiant heat.) 
Above-grade floor - A wood or concrete 
floor over a full basement, or in upper 
stories. Single wood floors, such as found 
in old houses and attics, require a top 
layer of plywood before installation. 
Double wood floors require no pre-treat- 
ment if the surface is flat and smooth.

H.VS THE IK 14-111 PRODUCT 

FOR TOIII FLOOR 

try- tlxo ys*rcl or tile 

Your first choice from among the many types, styles, colors 
and patterns of Congoleum-Nairn fine floors must be governed by where 
the floor is to be installed in relation to ground level. Moisture, heat 
and other sub-floor problems dictate which floor goes where. Only 
after selection of the correct kind of floor covering does your 
decorative taste guide your final decision. 



Tiles? Or seamless? 

It's a matter of personal taste. Both tile and by-the- 
yard Congoleum-Nairn floorings have their special 
uses, special appeals. You choose what suits you 
best. 

Tile — offers wide range of custom design with 
simple color combinations, easy to install yourself 
at about Vz less cost, preferred for on-grade and 
below-grade use. 

Seamless - professionally installed with virtually 
no seams to trap dust, dirt . . . easy to keep sanitary- 
clean. Adds beautiful luxury to floors. 



How about walls? 

In addition to specific wall coverings . . . such as 
Plastic Congowall . . . many Congoleum-Nairn floor 
coverings adapt beautifully to wall installation for 
a decorator's look, the same easy care you enjoy 
with Congoleum-Nairn fine floors. 

Remember, professional installation on either floors 
or walls is a highly skilled trade, requiring knowledge 
of surfaces, proper adhesives etc. Congoleum-Nairn 
makes many fine products that are simple and easy to 
install yourself. However, you're always sure of satis- 
faction when an expert does the job. 




You know you're right when you choose 

your CongoleUM-Naim floor. And your grandmother knew she was 
right in 1888. Yes, all through the years smart buyers have preferred 
Congoleum-Nairn floors. Decades ago the United States government bought 
Congoleum-Nairn battleship linoleum for critical areas (and still do). Today, 
the very modern Steve Aliens use Congoleum-Nairn vinyl in their Southern 
California home. The list of famous hospitals and hotels, schools and sky- 
scrapers, mansions and cottages using Congoleum-Nairn floors is endless, 
■fl The list of "firsts" in the company's history is equally long. For instance: 
Congoleum-Nairn originated the famous enamelled floor covering, Congoleum. 
In current history, there is the invention of both solid vinyl tiles and inlaid 
vinyl by the yard. Now there's new Ultima, combining linoleum with vinyl. 



M Congoleum-Nairn has also been a leader in advertising, the public's 
invaluable buying guide. Magazine advertising started way back in 1911. 
Beautiful full color ads showing Congoleum-Nairn floors have appeared 
hundreds of millions of times in America's greatest magazines and in journals 
for builders and architects. At the very inception of television Congoleum- 
Nairn started advertising on the biggest network. M Today, Congoleum- 
Nairn stays in the lead in every way. Watch for all that's new from Congoleum- 
Nairn. Millions and millions of Americans will see it during 1960— continually 
and constantly on the country's greatest daytime network television shows— 
in spectacular full-color ads in the greatest magazines for homemakers and 

for big builders, architects and decorators. Everywhere and every way, 
the news is being made by dynamic, new Congoleum-Nairn. 



COSMOPOLITAN VINYL 

A vinyl floor with a trend setting flair 



The latest and finest addition to the Flor-Ever sheet vinyl group 

of plastic floorings, the Cosmopolitan series combine a suggestion of 

beautifully grained marble chips surrounded by marble dust with 

iridescent metallics imbedded in clear vinyl to give a long lasting 

translucent depth that will not wear off or become dull. 



RECOMMENDED USES: 

Flor Ever Cosmopolitan may be installed 
over above-grade floors of wood, 
concrete or ceramic tile — with or without 
radiant heating — and on walls 
according to specifications.

WONDERTOP 



the solid vinyl top covering 



It's what's on top that counts! 

! 'Wondertop", the newest introduction in 

permanent plastic top coverings, is as 

wonderful as its name. 

A solid vinyl top covering, "Wondertop" 

cannot peel, chip or shatter and there 

is no chance of hidden deterioration 

causing unsightly blisters or bubbles. 

There is three times the wear 

surface of other products including 

the highest priced laminents. 



"Wondertop" can be installed in seamless 
lengths and is extra flexible for special effects 
and unusual techniques. Its sateen finish has 
excellent resistance to acids, alkalies and grease. 
Quiet too, "Wondertop" is resilient, therefore, 
reducing dish clatter. 

Designed to color correlate with the 
Congoleum-Nairn floor coverings, "Wondertop" 
blends to produce a beautiful final effect in 
the finished room on countertops, furniture, 
desks, doors and wall coverings.

STATIC 

COBTDUCTIVE 
LINOLEUM 



A special seamless type of linoleum which 
dissipates dangerous static charges is made 
exclusively by Congoleum-Nairn. 
Static Conductive linoleum is designed specifically 
for hospitals, arsenals, powder plants, 
and other commercial areas where there is the 
omnipresent danger of explosion, due to 
easily built up static electricity. 

It is made in 6 feet wide yard goods only by 
Congoleum-Nairn. This makes possible the 
following outstanding features. 

1 . Easy to install ...no special grid under floor 
necessary; the conductivity is built 

into the linoleum.., less installation cost. 

2. Almost no dirt catching seams, such as 

in tile floors, to aid in bacteriological 
growth. Also makes possible coving from 
floor to wall, for easier maintenance. 

Now made in three new color decorations, 

Static Conductive linoleum is quiet and 
resilient underfoot. It will withstand 
dirt and staining. 

Static Conductive linoleum is made in 

two types . . . "U" for hospital use and 
"G" for areas where explosive materials 
may be used.

How to create your own designs 

in Co ngole urn- Nairn tile floors 




by C. EUGENE STEPHENSON, American Institute of Decorators 



What you will want to know about tile floors 
before you start: You must first consider the ques- 
tion of the location of the room in relation to the 
ground. Be sure to see the explanatory diagram 
on Page 6. To help you decide what type of tile 
to use in various rooms you will find helpful 
descriptions of each type of Congoleum-Nairn 
Tile starting on page 40. 

How to choose your color schemes 

your home reflects you — your personality and way 
of living. So your preference is most important. 
Select colors you like . . . use them to please your- 
self. Of course there are some colors that are 
beautifully compatible . . . and others that simply 
don't go together. But don't let color selection 
frighten you — the following pages give you many 
suggested color schemes that you can adapt to 
make selection easy . . . and lots of fun. 

doing only one room? If you plan to completely 
redecorate the room, naturally you'll choose floor- 
ing, paint and furnishings in colors that are com- 
patible. If a new floor is all you plan, be sure it's 
compatible with your existing furniture and decor. 
Chosen carefully, your new floor can bring the 
whole room alive with new beauty. 

more than one room? Then it's wise to remember 
that each room is part of the whole house and 
should be compatible with its neighboring rooms. 
If you plan only on new floors, again consider your 
present furnishings. If a complete redecorating 
plan is in order, try carrying one or two basic 
colors from room to room, combining with other 
colors in each room. These charts show how easy 
it is. 

What to keep in mind about each room 

South and West Rooms are usually sunny most of 
the day and so have a naturally warm feeling 
about them. In these rooms you can afford to use 
cool blues and greens. 

North and East Rooms get less sun, tend to 
seem cooler. The warmer shades of rose, beige and 
peach are generally recommended for these rooms. 
Darker Rooms, those receiving very little natural 
light, definitely need the brightening effect of 
whites and light tones. Dark walls, furnishings or 
floors make these rooms seem rather gloomy.

MAIN-FLOOR COLOR SCHEME BASED ON A BROWN TINT. 

(Of course, the brown, which is common to all four rooms, may be used on 
the floor in one room, on furniture in another room, on a wall in another, etc.)

H 



ow to Use Design to 

Best Advantage 




Remember these simple principles: 

| To keep your floor design from becoming 
cluttered, never use more than 3 or 4 colors. 

2 If a room has many pieces of furniture, a 
simple design will show them off to best 
advantage. 

3 Use busy, "loud" designs only in active 
areas such as game rooms or rumpus 
rooms — living and dining rooms need 
quiet, subdued designs. 



HOW TO HANDLE SPECIAL PROBLEMS 



SMALL ROOMS: 

These areas usually lend themselves best to small 
designs. For example, this ribbon border is used in 
an entrance hall about 6' x 8'. Notice how the 
design is kept as 
simple as possible, 
with the border one 
tile wide, and a 
"turned" effect at 
the corners adding 
just a touch of in- 
terest. A simple 
color scheme also 
goes best in small 
rooms. It makes 
them appear larger. 



NARROW ROOMS: 





Rooms of rather "tight" 
dimensions one way, can 
be made to look wider if 
you use stripes of con- 
trasting colors, either 
diagonally or straight 
across. Select subtle 
colors if the room is con- 
servatively decorated, or 
bold colors if it's a bright- 
er room. The room shown 
is approximately 8' x 16' 
with stripes 9" and 18" 
wide in three colors. 
Naturally, the smaller 
the room, the smaller the 
stripes, 



CUT-UP ROOMS: 

Try to turn the irregu- 
larity of these rooms 
into an advantage by 
using as irregular de- 
sign. Here, a corner 
fireplace is played up 
by diagonal "quilt" 
pattern that directs 
your attention to the 
fireplace. The pattern 
also tends to play 
down the awkward 
diagonal corner by 
simply ignoring it. 

Another idea is to "feature" an irregularity by 
placing a design near it on an otherwise plain floor. 
For example, a diamond design in front of a bay 
window, or a star design in front of a stair landing. 




HALLWAYS: 




In addition to various stripe and overall pat- 
terns, consider the possibilities of special geo- 
metric designs like the ones shown here. Unless 
the design is a form of stripe, it isn't generally 
wise to continue it on the stair. For very narrow 
hallways, designs shouldn't contain too many 
colors.

IVAIROIV CU§TOM 
viiwyl tile VENETIAN 



Here, in Venetian, is the finest romantic expression of Congoleum- 

Nairn's finest vinyl plastic - reminiscent of the luxurious architecture of 

old Venice. Acids, oils and grease have little effect on this top quality 

plastic. Household spills wipe up without a trace. For faster cleaning 

and easier maintenance we recommend a good detergent cleaning 

and a light waxing. Damp mopping keeps it sparkling in between times. 

Most durable of all — full thickness, laboratory-controlled production 

with finest materials, inlaid colors— all assure out-standing wear. Takes 

heaviest loads without indenting more than any other type resilient tile.

lVO]Vl>l]RFLOR SOLID VI\Y1, TIIJ 




WONDERFLOR, made by a vinyl formula with over ten 

years of proven wear, is a solid vinyl tile — not 

a paper thin veneer-type printed tile. It has an exclusive 

sateen finish for nicer appearance and 

trouble-free resistance to grit and grime. 

WONDERFLOR offers 70% more wear than veneer or 

other plastic tiles and 50% more wear than 

service gauge linoleum tile. It is annealed to eliminate 

curl and shrinkage tendencies and has greater 

indentation resistance than all other materials in the field 

of residential smooth surface flooring. It is slip 

resistant, flexible, and will not break, chip, or shatter.

VIXYL, ASBESTOS WITH 

FEATHERVEIXIXG 

Vinylbest is the vinyl asbestos tile that ends pattern wear because 
color and decoration penetrate to the back. In these tiles the striation is just 
as strong throughout (right to the bottom) 

as at the top! Vinylbest Tile, with Feather veining 
Thru and Thru, will never develop any areas where the pattern has been 
worn off— as in traffic lanes and near doors — 
nor show pattern differences from area to area. 

Vinylbest Tile has improved surface smoothness, is tough and flexible, 
and is unharmed by alkalies, grease, most solvents, and cleaners. 



RECOMMENDED USES: 

Above-grade floors of wood, concrete 

or ceramic tile. On or below-grade floors 
of concrete or ceramic tile 

(with or without radiant heating).

ASI»HAI/r TILE 

Colorful Congoleum-Nairn Asphalt Tile combines low first-cost with durability 
and is now made with Feather veining. The striation is unchanged all through 

the tile, so no matter how far it wears down, the pattern effect remains the same. 
No more "worn look" where traffic is heavier, as near doors, counters, etc. Specially 

designed to withstand the alkaline moisture common to basements and other 
areas where concrete floors are in contact with the ground. 



with Featherveining 



The smooth, uniform surface resists dirt and spills — is easy 
to care for and factory waxing assures a long wearing gloss. 

Tiles are cut true and square for tight joining and 
colors and designs hold their beauty and clarity — giving 

years of satisfactory service. 



RECOMMENDED USES: 

Above-grade floors of wood, 
concrete or ceramic tile. 
On or below-grade floors of 
concrete or ceramic tile (with 
or without radiant heating). 
Below-grade concrete or 
ceramic tile.

HOW TO 



CARE FOR 



FLOORS 



AND WALLS 



Properly maintained Congoleum-Nairn Floors 

and Walls will give their owners years of 

sparkling, trouble-free service. Mild 

cleaning agents, such as Nairn Linoleum Cleaner, 

are recommended. Nairn Self-Polishing Wax will 

protect, preserve and add a high luster to any floor. 



FLOORS 



[ 



A damp mop will remove light soiling from 
Congoleum-Nairn Floors. Rubber heel marks can be 
cleaned from all Congoleum-Nairn products, except 
asphalt tile, by rubbing with a cloth moistened in a 
dry cleaning solvent. To wash floor coverings use warm 
water and Nairn Linoleum Cleaner. Use fine steel wool 
for stubborn smudges. Rinse thoroughly with clean - 
water and allow to dry. Do not use excessive water. 



After the floor is completely dry, apply a light coat of 
Nairn Self-Polishing Wax with a wool applicator or 
soft cloth. Allow to dry for half an hour before using 
or applying a second coat of wax. Repeat this process 
as often as required — every week or two in kitchens 
and other service areas. Abrasive cleaning compounds 
should never be used, for they roughen and scratch 
surfaces. Strong soaps and detergents should be avoided, 
except where the floor is Nairon Custom. They can be 
used on this product to speed cleaning, without fear of 
harming the surface. 

Do not apply lacquer, plastic or other hard finishes 
to any Congoleum-Nairn Floor. These materials tend 
to yellow the colors and will wear off in traffic spots. 
In the case of Congoleum-Nairn Plastics, hard finishes 
quickly peel off the non-porous surface. Use only Nairn 
or some other good self-polishing wax on asphalt tile, 
as paste and solvent waxes have a harmful effect on 
their composition. 



WALLS 




Most soiling is easily removed from Plastic 
"Congowall," Nairon Custom Tile, Flor-Ever Yard 
Goods, Linoleum Tile and Yard Goods, Cork and 
Rubber Tile, with a damp cloth. When a complete 
washing is indicated, use warm water and Nairn 
Linoleum Cleaner. Rinse the wall covering 
thoroughly with clean warm water, and dry with 
a terry cloth or chamois. No waxing is required. 



L 



COUNTER TOPS 



Keep Flor-Ever Vinyltop and Wondertop clean 
with a damp cloth. Always use a pad under pots 
that are hotter than boiling water. Sink and counter 
tops may be waxed or not, as the owner prefers. 
However, an occasional waxing with a good paste 
wax will produce a lasting mirror-brilliance. 

Important 

Broken casters and small metal slides indent floor 
coverings and may mar them permanently. Equip all 
furniture with large surface casters, glides or furniture 
cups. Rest heavy appliances or cabinets on a separate, 
extra pad of floor covering cut to the size of the base.
